What if NBC got it wrong? Would that come anywhere close to the number of lies this POTUS has told Americans?

No it wouldn't, and news organizations generally admit when they got something wrong. On the other hand, Trump actually believes everything he says is true. I suggest that he read up on the 1st and 25th amendments.

The mentally-ill, potus, elected by the obsolete electoral college, has the same remedy against fake news as all citizens. He can sue for libel. NBC network is not a licensed entity. If he wants to sue a NBC affiliated radio, tv or online entity, he will have to prove, among other facts, intent, and failing such, he will have committed an unconstitutional act under the First Amendment, which is impeachable.

President Trump is wrong to try to bully and intimidate news outlets. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Another goosestep on the road to Nuremberg in Americas experiment with Fascism ,the good news Trump has been the godfather of "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight ", the bad news is that a mentally ill POTUS already has the codes to 4,000 or so nuclear weapons .
